I've included a link to the OPEN At Home Activities Website- This website has a variety of different bonus activities that your child can do at home!

 

Self- Selected Fitness Activity:

 

Riding a bike

 

Indoor Basketball-  Have a pair of socks?  GREAT.  Fold them into great a ball.  Use a box, a basket, any type of container, or have an adult make a hoop with their arms. That can be the hoop.  Practice accuracy!

 

Gotta Catch Em All Pokemon!  (Practice a skill.  If you can do it 10 times correctly, you caught a Pokemon!  Can you do it 10 more times?  You earned another!) 

 

Roller skating

 

Create a bike path (have chalk and a driveway?  Draw a path that you can ride your bike/scooter/roller skates along)

 

Badminton

 

Frisbee Golf-  Have a frisbee?  Go outside and make different objects the target.  Try to throw the frisbee as close to the target as you can.  More than 1 player?  Each player takes a turn.  (similar to mini golf)  See how many throws it takes.

 

Corn hole!  Have a hula hoop and a bean bag?   See if you can underhand toss the bean bag to make it into the hoop!  Challenge someone!

 

Exercise competition!  See how many/how long of an exercise you can do (push ups, jumping jacks, running in place, etc)  Dare to challenge someone?  Go for it!
